Forwarding Ports for Serviio
When you use Serviio you might need to forward some ports in your router. A port forward allows incoming connection requests from the internet to go straight to Serviio.
Routers generally do not allow incoming connection requests from the internet. By forwarding a port you can overcome this limitation.
Remember to Do These Things Before You Forward a Port
Before you can forward a port you need to know the following things:
- The internal IP address of your router.
- Your media server's internal IP address.
- The list of the TCP and UDP ports that you need to forward.
